Minnesota Timberwolves Starting Lineup Analysis

D’Angelo Russell has had a tumultuous NBA career through his first six seasons in the league. He has bounced around from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Brooklyn Nets, then went to the Golden State Warriors, and finally has landed in Minnesota. Since 2018-19, Russell has put up 21.1 points, 6.5 assists, and 3.6 rebounds per game. Russell and KAT get along very well and have great chemistry, so while Minnesota may not be very good, those two likely will be.

The No. 1 overall pick from the 2020 NBA Draft, Anthony Edwards, enters his second year after an impressive rookie campaign. Edwards put up 19.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists last season, and all signs point to a meteoric rise this season. Edwards has supposedly grown to 6-foot-6, which is frightening for a player with such freakish athleticism. If Edwards can improve slightly on his shooting efficiency, both from the field and behind the arc, he should take that big next step and become a star in this league. Ever since he was drafted, Karl-Anthony Towns has consistently been the starting center for Minnesota and had an excellent track record of staying healthy up until the past two seasons. In his first four seasons, he only missed five games. It did not take long from when K.A.T. was drafted for him to grow into their best offensive threat. He averaged 24.8 points, 4.5 assists, and 10.6 rebounds last year and only looks primed to improve next year. KAT will undoubtedly be Minnesota’s first offense option, but he’ll need to prove he can be a better presence on the defensive end.
